Why spend hours searching for the perfect cottage, house or condo for your next holiday when you can get advice from travel writers who’ve actually stayed in the properties?
Book Cottages was founded by experienced travel writers Noreen Kompanik and Kristi Dosh, who rounded up some of their travel writing friends to help them profile the best vacation rentals Europe. The ladies also own Travel by Vacation Rental, which profiles properties in the United States and other destinations outside of Europe.
Noreen and Kristi met on their very first press trip back in 2015 on St. Simons Island in Georgia. Since then, they’ve traveled the country together and started two businesses, this site and their own travel writing retreats for travel writers who are ready to take their writing to the next level.
The ladies launched this site after staying in some amazing vacation rentals both for travel writing retreats and for personal travel. They love getting to experience destinations more through the lens of a local by staying in condos, townhomes and houses that allow them to settle in and feel right at home.
